    Quite a few of us headed up to Knockhill on Sunday just gone and for a few of us it was our first track day, if not our first time on track. Took a few photos but cant take credit for them all and there are plenty more to be found on the Boaby Tapp'd facebook page here

    Heres a few pics of the flamer along with a few others that have sneaked in!

    The day started off with this view for me

    [​IMG]

    and Stevo C got to look at my arse for the first, but far from last time that day as we convoyed up, having a large van certainly had its advantages,

    [​IMG]

    and it got much much fuller than that! It also meant that the cruise up meant I got this!

    [​IMG]

    So we got there, got the chav unloaded and my wheels changed over, wandered around asking noob questions and generally cacking it!

    We didn't have very long after the good briefing before our session started, they very nicely let us all go in the same group which was a definite bonus.
    Lining up before the first run

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Dave got stuck into the day quite quickly :wink:

    [​IMG]

    And a couple from when I was out on track

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and around the paddock

    [​IMG]

    The headlight tape came off pretty damn quickly!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this little mod gained me full tenths around each corner :wink:

    [​IMG]

    it also stopped the horrific rattling that they had been doing!

    [​IMG]

    Also some of you may remember the brief spell where I thought I wanted a big cruiser, well here it is again! Looking a bit worse for wear and certainly not my idea of an ideal track toy but they were still having fun!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a couple of videos that ashbash took on her phone

    [​IMG]

    Pushing the gtr along :wink:

    [​IMG]

    So by the end of the day the figures looked like this

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and my brakes looked like this

    [​IMG]

    And all of us are 100% fully fully hooked!

    We will be back, its not an if but a definite when!

    Thanks
    John

    Aye, bar a couple of cars the standard in our group was decent, was a quite a few newbies in it as well. Wouldn't hesitate to go back on one tbh.

    We'll be fitting sidemounts to the chav fairly soon, although they'll probably still be very low!

    Surely the same colour code as trophy turinis would be a nice touch Steve?

    Any anthracite will look stunning.

    Willy wheels always looked amazing on the 1*2.
